Former England international Rachel Yankey says she is ‘humbled’ to be inducted into the Women’s Super League Hall of Fame.

Carlotte Wubben-Moy started Arsenal‘s last Women’s Super League game but Leah Williamson is likely to come back into the starting line-up this weekend after featuring in the Champions League in midweek.

New signing Tobin Heath has not started for Arsenal since arriving at the club, but she could feature in a front three along with Vivianne Miedema and Beth Mead.

Everton forward Anna Anvegard will hope to continue where she left off in her last outing is likely to play alongside Claire Emslie and Toni Duggan.

The visitors’ central midfield three of Kenza Dali, Aurora Galli and Izzy Christiansen have all featured in every game this season and they will start on Sunday.

    Arsenal captain Kim Little says her side struggled to nullify Barcelona’s threats in their 4-1 Champions League defeat.

    • After losing their first FA WSL match against Everton in July 2011, Arsenal have won 13 out of 14 matches against the Toffees (D1), winning the last 11 in a row.
    • Everton have lost all seven of their away FA WSL matches against Arsenal by an aggregate score of 19-4. They are the only team to play more than five away games against an opponent without picking up a single point.
    • Arsenal have won 12 of their last 13 FA Women’s Super League games (D1), collecting 11 clean sheets in the process while scoring 39 goals.
    • After losing their opening two FA WSL matches 4-0 against Man City and Chelsea, Everton have won their last two and are looking for three wins in a row for the first time since winning four consecutively in September and October 2020.
    • For a third time in the last four seasons, Arsenal have won their opening four FA WSL matches, also doing so in 2018-19 and 2020-21 – they went on to win their fifth match of the season in both of those two previous campaigns.

    Former Arsenal goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain says Arsenal’s 4-1 Champions League defeat to Barcelona is a ‘learning curve’ for Jonas Eidevall’s side.

    • In their last eight away FA WSL matches, Everton have either failed to score (four times) or scored three or more goals, winning all four games when scoring at least three, including last time out against Reading (3-0).
    • All four of Arsenal’s goals in their 4-0 win over Aston Villa were scored in the second half – with 10 second half goals already this season, Arsenal have scored more goals in that period than 10 of the 11 other WSL sides have scored in total, with Chelsea the exception (scored 15 goals).
    • Everton’s last 11 FA WSL goals have been scored by different players: Hayley Raso, Lucy Graham, Izzy Christiansen, Simone Magill, Megan Finnigan, Leonie Maier, Hanna Bennison, Rikke Sevecke, Anna Anvegard, Claire Emslie and Danielle Turner.
    • Arsenal’s Kim Little – who is just two goals shy of becoming the fourth player to score 50 goals in the FA WSL – has scored five WSL goals against Everton, only netting more against Liverpool in the competition (6).
    • Everton striker Toni Duggan has scored seven FA WSL goals against Arsenal (four for Everton, three for Man City), the joint-most any player has scored against the Gunners along with Ellen White. Despite last facing them with the Toffees in September 2013, she is still Everton’s leading scorer against Arsenal in the WSL with four goals.
